Vignettes from Christmases Past









































































It's December 1st

and time to start thinking about 

Christmas 2013.




Sadie and I hope you enjoyed our look back

and perhaps inspired you to add a touch of

tartan to your own holiday vignettes?




This season as we deck the halls here @ HFTS 

my heart will be filled with mixed emotions.

My sweet mother passed away Thanksgiving Morning.

Hearts ache with the loss but are also filled with gratitude 

and pride for the legacy Mother leaves behind. 

She was 99 years old, lived a joyful life,

and was dearly loved by those who knew her.

No question I will feel her spirit beside me

as I decorate the tree and add little touches

of tartan among this year's holiday vignettes.
